Celebrating 5 years with Katie

5 years ago we were blessed with our "miracle baby" Katie! After a very stressful week in the UAE, a long plane ride home accompanied by a physician, 2 weeks in the hospital, and 9 weeks of bedrest..... we welcomed Katie into the world. Certainly, the Lord answered many prayers in giving us a healthy, full-term baby girl. In the past 5 years, I have had multiple opportunities to reflect on Job's words "The Lord gives and takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord" Katie is an example of the Lord giving to us and I have appreciated that even more as He has "taken away" other unborn babies. Thank you Lord for Katie!

Grammy Pittman helped us make this castle cake!

Celebrating with friends!

A Day at a One Room School House

Last week, Anna & Michael had the opportunity to spend the day with other home schooled kids at a one room school house. It is maintained by the school district to give kids the chance to learn about how school used to be. It was a lot of fun and very interesting! The highlight of the day was writing with feather quills and ink wells. There were about 20 kids there of various ages and they all dressed up and brought lunches in pails and handkerchiefs. As you can see, they would have been very cute pioneer kids!
